Rhodes Architecture + Light
- Completed: 2007 - Project Location: Kirkland, WA - Project Size: 2611 SF + 553 (Garages) - Project Cost: $269/SF - Photographer: Michael Shopenn The custom West of Market Residence, located in Kirkland, Washington, is simple yet formal and sophisticated. The residence sits on an urban 7500 square foot lot with views of Lake Washington. The owners are a professional and a Japanese garden designer. The roofline of the residence and the simple Portland cement plaster and stained clear western red cedar create an archetypal image of “house”. The West of Market Residence has a formal entrance facing the street and layered gardens, terraces, and balconies facing the private rear yard. A cedar trellis under the overhanging roof at the master suite lends an outdoor feeling to a southern garden balcony. The owners wanted to incorporate a number of flower and vegetable gardens into the residence. This was done through tiered planters, planted paths, and lower garden spaces. The interiors feature three bedrooms and bathrooms, a formal entry hall, office, and open living-dining-kitchen space. Dark, almost black, stained quarter-sawn oak cabinetry contrasts light walls and flooring on the interior of the house. Coffered ceilings, glass, maple floors, and integral lighting result in light Mediterranean spaces complemented with natural stone tile, mosaics and colored glass fixtures. The owners of the West of Market Residence worked with Peter Opsahl Structural Engineers, Robin Freeman, Interiors, LightWire, Lighting Design, and Bender Chaffee Construction alongside Rhodes Architecture + Light. Construction was completed in 2009.

Black + Vernooy Architects
The Kinney Mues Development is a neighborhood infill project that turned one oversized lot into a community of 8 paired condominiums, for a total of 16 living units all nestled around and between large, existing oaks in South Austin. This project achieves many aspects of sustainable land use - from creating a shared greenway and protecting existing trees to developing a significant urban density within a neighborhood. The character of the community is accentuated by the reuse of antique doors and stained glass windows in each unit.

Upside Development
Upside Development completed an contemporary architectural transformation in Taylor Creek Ranch. Evolving from the belief that a beautiful home is more than just a very large home, this 1940’s bungalow was meticulously redesigned to entertain its next life. It's contemporary architecture is defined by the beautiful play of wood, brick, metal and stone elements. The flow interchanges all around the house between the dark black contrast of brick pillars and the live dynamic grain of the Canadian cedar facade. The multi level roof structure and wrapping canopies create the airy gloom similar to its neighbouring ravine.
